Not only has my week just gone more wrong than any other, I thought it was over. I got my tooth filled yesterday and scheduled a regular appointment with the dentist.
I had a wonderful day yesterday. I didn't go to work like I had planned because our server was down and so was the internet at work. My boss called me after my appointment and told me not to worry about coming in to work. OK!
I cleaned the house (or so I thought!!! more later), vacuumed, clean the kitchen, then went grocery shopping, made brownies, made dinner, taught piano, then went to the store with my wonderful hubby!
We came home from the store and crashed on the couch to watch the Olympics. We finished watching the Women's Beach Volleyball Gold Medal round (YEAH USA!!!) and got up to go to bed upstairs. I had to get a glass of water to take my meds so I walked over and grabbed a glass, filled it with ice, and saw this little shadow on the floor go by my feet.
HMMM.... was it Jet? No, he was in the living room. Was it my hand? The angle of the light wasn't right. Surely it wasn't a mouse. The space where I thought I saw it going was WAY too small for a mouse!
ZIP... (blood curdling scream).... (James!!! JAmes!! JAMes!!! JAMEs!!!!!!! JAAAAAAAMMMMMMEEEEESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)..... I jump on the ottoman and cannot move for fear of my life!......
From one of the smallest creatures on the planet!!!
We have a mouse in the house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
EEEEEEWWWWWWW!!!!! WHY?? WHY???
James came running down the stairs and I could hardly get the words out. "We have a mouse...... un..... un.... under.... under there...."
"You have to tell me where "there" is. Where?"
She points to the dishwasher.
"Under the dishwasher? A mouse can't get under the dishwasher," he says as if I have seen a something I haven't. "It could be a cockroach!"
"EWWWWWWWWWWWW. Just get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't care what it is.... just get it!!!!!!! EWWWWW..." as tears start rolling down my cheeks.
Of course, this is the first time we have even thought about the possibility of having a mouse in the house so we don't have traps or anything. We do have wasps in the backyard though, so James grabs the wasp spray and sprays it under the dishwasher!
He is about as jumpy as I was. He goes looking for the flashlight and I am watching him, then Jet decides that he is going to pounce on my pile of clothes ready for the laundry. I guess the mouse got out and went either into the pile or behind the buffet! ARG.... I am still standing on the ottoman!
"Please get it James, or Jet!"
So James turns on the flashlight to look behind the buffet!
So much for Jet finding the mouse! He is more interested in chasing the light from the flashlight! I think, "why did we have to teach him that?"
James looks around the house for droppings or anything that would tell us it was a mouse and he found a piece of food that Jet had not eaten that had a bunch of little nibble marks on it! Yep... its a mouse!!! EWWW!
After about 30 minutes of me cowering on the ottoman, James finally convinces me to go upstairs. I run from the ottoman to the stairs. James never found the mouse, so we are getting traps tonight to get it!! I just don't know if I can walk around my house barefooted till we get it.
EWWWWWW!!! I know God has a sense of humor, I just know He was laughing so hard last night!
Moral of the story: Never ask what else can go wrong!

It was a chunk of my tooth!
At first I thought it was a peice of food, but it was way too hard. I then put my tongue back there again and felt this huge (about the size of a pencil eraser!) hole!
I must confess- I have been procrastinating going to the dentist since James and I moved to Denver! I know... ewww.. yuck... bad, bad girl! We have been meaning to go (I actually love going to the dentist) but we just didn't know where to start looking. Well, now I am forced to go! I suppose its a good thing.
It just makes me sick to think I have a HOLE in my tooth! Yuck! I haven't tried to eat anything yet cause I dont want it to hurt or for something to get stuck in it! (EWWWWWWW) Ok... I'll stop grossing everyone out!
I am wondering if I am causing my body "harm" by staying up so late and getting as little sleep as I am. I have been staying up till midnight every night watching the Olympics and just cannot fall asleep. I know that the night before last I stayed up till midnight and then turned off the tv and I couldn't fall asleep. It took me almost another 2 hours to get to sleep. Hmmmm, just my thoughts.
How do you get yourself to fall asleep if you can't? (Did that make any sense?)

We went back to the office and I came home, cause I just couldn't stay out of the ladies room. My stomach is just irritated today! Yuck. So, I am home laying on the couch trying to keep from moving cause that just makes it worse. Good thing I don't mind watching the news over and over. Send me an email for me to respond to. That will give me something to do!

Luckily I found him. I would have felt bad if I would have let him go for the coyotes to get. I wanted to keep him, but he and Jet did not get along very well. Jet wanted to play and the ferret just kept swatting at him with his claws and got his nose once. Taught Jet quickly that it didn't want to play!
Oh well. At least it should go to a good home now.

He then proceeded to burrow himself into Jet's blanket and stay there. I tried to get him run away but he would just walk right up to me. So I am pretty darn sure that he is a tame ferret and someone's pet. So for google's sake I am going to put this tag line in here in case someone is looking for their pet.
Ferret found in Green Valley Ranch, Denver, CO, on August 11, 2008. Denver Animal Control to picked up.
So anyway... Right now I am sitting on my front porch waiting for Animal Control to come pick up the ferret. It is sitting beside me in a cardboard box that he is trying to get out of (but not very hard cause he isn't making noise anymore.)
I had put a little thing of water in the box for him and he tipped it over. That is why it looks wet!!
So, thats my fun for today!!! Yippeee, huh?

So I have to do a little bit of explaining. If you see, I have a white helmet and it has pink flames on it. Very non-traditional scooterish! Well, I have this theory. The more rediculus I look riding around Denver, the more chance that people will see me and not run over me!
For those of you wondering, I got the scooter online at http://www.scooterdepot.us/. It took me a month to get it cause they were backordered. Anyway, it is a 150cc scooter and I have gotten it up to 60 miles per hour. I am getting at least 80 miles to the gallon on gas and the last time I put gas in, it cost me $6. I don't have to fill up but maybe once a week. It is sooooo nice!
Yes, I do have to have a motorcycle license to drive it, and yes, it does have to have insurance and a license plate.
It is so fun. We are working on getting all the kinks worked out of it, but other than that I am extremely happy with this purchase.
BY the way, YES, I do drive it to work. I do not drive on the interstate (not legal) but I do drive it on Buckley and Arapahoe Rds. Just thought you all should know!
